    Is there anything wrong with my pronounication of these 3 sentences?

    Hi everyone,

    I have these 3 sentences, where I want to see if you think they are pronounced correctly or not?


    1. "Don't think about it."
    Here I seem to link "about it" and pronounce "it" as "dit" rather than "tit". Is this normal?


    2. "How 'bout you?"
    Here I seem to link "bout you" and pronounce "bout you" as "bou d'you" instead of "bou cho". Is this normal?


    Here is the audio.

    3. "Again? Weren't you just complaining that it's too expensive to eat out? Not when you're hungry" -
    I seem to pronounce "weren't you" as "weren d'you" and "you're" as "d'you're" by instinct...


    Does it seem odd to anyone? :/

    This is what I picked up.
    In the first, you've dropped the 't' in "don't"
    In the second, you do insert a strange 't' or 'd' in "Not whent you're hungry".

    I agree with Raymott.

    I hear [] sound in "... eat out ...".
    It sounds like [iː aʊt] to me - it sounds like 'breathe out' without pronouncing the "br".
